Hi,  

 

I have a customer who uses excel effectively as a headless compute engine, where calculations are distributed and written back to a SQL Server.

 

They are looking at using Azure batch to increase the amount of compute resources they have.  Is there any guidance on:

1. Any gallery images in Azure that contain Excel as standard

2. How to automate the install of Excel and associated office license - the nodes are ephemeral
